This black and multi-coloured Paco Rabanne dress is a little number we pull out of the bag when occasion permits it- and by 'occasion' we mean 'every day' (after all, when is Paco not the order of the day?). This dress has been cut to a knee length, with cropped sleeves, a front zip fastening and an asymmetric hem. Oh, and not to mention it's been served up with a large helping of Paco panache by way of the energetic all-over print featuring a prowling tiger and flowers. We are styling our Paco Rabanne dress with our black leather apron buckle boots for our next private viewing in Putney (where our dress may or may not be distracting from the elaborate artwork).

MEET THE DESIGNER
The Browns' Edit of Paco Rabanne celebrates the brand's reputation for unconventional elegance. Born Francisco Rabaneda y Cuervo in 1934 in Pasaia in the Spanish Basque Country, his mother, who was the head seamstress at Balenciaga, fled to France because of the Spanish civil war. Spanish at heart and French by adoption, Francisco Rabaneda would go by the name of Paco Rabanne. Upon his graduation from Fine Arts school in Paris he worked with the top houses of Nina Ricci, Pierre Cardin and Givenchy among others before presenting his own line in 1966. Entitled "12 Unwearable dresses in contemporary materials" the collection featured pieces made from chain mail created from sequins and rhodoid plates. Today under the guidance of Julien Dossena the house continues to celebrate the spirit of the 1960's bold futurist outlook.
